The Batemans Bay community is asking Eurobodalla Shire Council to reconsider their plans to replace a 50m pool with a 25m pool, in a planned new Aquatic/Arts facility with hydroptherapy, learn to swim and splash pool/park. These facilities are important because they will meet the needs of the community.
The community has the 50m pool for 52 years because of a philanthropic donation by Edwin and DaisyStreet (Streets Ice Cream). It is a community asset. Everyone who has wanted to use the pool has been able to. However, downsizing the lap swimming space by 33% to a 25m pool (equal to a 4 lane 50m pool) groups and individuals will be excluded/limited from using the 25m lap pool.
Batemans Bay is 10th on the list of tourist destinations and a fast growing area. Downsizing the 50m pool to a 25m pool will not meet the needs of the whole community now or in the future.
Eurobodalla Shire Council please reconsider your plans and include a 50m pool in the new Aquatic/Arts facility so this wonderful community asset will be for the whole community.
